President Rouhani stated that "the assassination of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) by some global terrorists like the White House, Zionism [ie, Israel] and some reactionaries in the Arab region was due to the fact that Iran has begun moving towards economic growth… enemies are trying to tell the world that Iran is an isolated island and we must disappoint them”. He went on to urge that “we must all stand together and not let Trump succeed. We should not let the White House terrorists succeed, they are assassinating Iran's relations with the world's banks. We have to be careful. They are assassinating people's trust with the system”.
